Crockpot Chili

What you need: 

2-3 cup cooked beans (whatever type of bean you like)
1 28oz. can of crushed tomatoes
1 28oz. can of diced tomatoes
2 cup chopped bell peppers (can use frozen)
1 cup textured vegetable protein granules
1 cup veggie broth
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup chickpea flour
2 cloves of garlic, minced
canned chipotle peppers and adobo sauce
garnish: cilantro, sprinkle of uncheeze, tortillas or chips, etc.

What you do: 

Add the cold water to the chickpea flour, and mix until "dissolved."
Add the chickpea water and all other ingredients to the crockpot.
I like to add one whole chipotle pepper and a couple of teaspoons of the adobo sauce, but I like a spicy chili, so start off with just a bit depending on your preferences.
Cook on medium-low for at least 2 hours, or as long as 9. If you cook for a very long time, you may need more water or broth.
Season with salt and/or more chipotles or adobo sauce.
To serve, you can garnish with anything you like, including cilantro, a sprinkle of some soy cheese, tortillas, chips, anything you like.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

I used chickpea flour because it's like adding pureed beans to thicken. If you don't have chickpea flour, I would skip the other flours and just add some more beans, either whole, mashed, or pureed.

Is it really necessary to use chickpea flour or will any other type work?

I've subbed out TVP for grains too, especially bulgur, which I usually have on hand. Your version sounds great, VS!

This was a great dinner! I must admit I totally changed the recipe on accident. I had all the ingredients, or so I thought...after I got everything in the pan I realized my chipotle peppers in adobe were gone! Dang it! So I quick went online and found a recipe for adobe sauce and then added those ingredients to the chili. In the end it came out great. I used barley instead of the TVP and I used 1/2 an onion and 2 huge bells. I plan to definitely make again(and I will actually use the chipotle peppers...)
